Travel tips you can trust.

By The Way

Is solo travel thrilling or anxiety inducing? For me, it’s both.

A trip by yourself can be daunting. One comic illustrates the highs and lows of her experiences.

This comic first appeared on The Lily.

When I travel by myself, I can feel my anxiety creep in that I try to temper.

Maybe I’m just a nervous person in general. Of course it’s nice to have a travel buddy — someone to share experiences with — but I’ve also learned that going by myself has helped me grow and gain independence.

And when I come home, I enjoy sharing the travel stories that only I can really tell.
